Uncle Bob was one of the most amazing individuals I have ever had the pleasure to know. During my vacations with him and my Aunt Nancy in Maryland when I was a child, he taught me all kinds of amazing things. He was so patient and talked to me like I was a real person and not a child. I'll never forget the smell of his pipe smoke or the sound of his voice. His daughters, Linda and Carol, were also very good to me when they were visiting at the same time. I'm so very disappointed that our reunion this summer had to be canceled due to the virus. I was so excited to see Uncle Bob again. I'm devastated at his loss but take comfort in knowing he lived his life exactly how he wanted to. I will never forget him.
